We’ll manage all the little details that will help you stand out from larger centers, as well as other local competitors.

Our value: using a ton of options to help your addiction treatment facility stand out from the competition.

The Many Addiction Treatment Center Marketing Avenues

If you’re a center that has been approved for Google Ads LegitScript program, this section doesn’t really apply to you. However, if you don’t have a certification, read on because you need a new advertising plan for 2019 and 2020.

To explain, we need to go back to  September of 2017. It was a dark day for many treatment centers. That’s because Google quietly, and without notice, turned off all drug rehab advertising. Many rehabs and treatment facilities, like the ones we work with, were cut off at the knees. We had one client that was getting about 70% of their patients from these ads.  Sure, they were expensive, but they worked. Our sister company (Recovery Hub) was also successfully using Google Adwords to place clients across the country.

Addiction Treatment Center Marketing-bing-ad-partner
We have been successful with Bing Ad campaigns long before the Google Adwords shut down.

We were pretty sad, but fortunately, all of our eggs were not in that basket. That’s because we were simultaneously advertising on other search networks. We’ve also been using social platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, Yelp and Twitter advertising, for several years. You see good addiction treatment center marketing, depends on the ability to be nimble and act quickly.

Drug Rehab Marketing Requires Finesse

In the last few years, we’ve had considerable success advertising with Bing Ads  Yes, that overlooked channel that everyone has written off, as last decades search platform.

People are using this search network. It’s just a different demographic then you’re used to.

There is one important thing to realize, you need to be fast and nimble. Facebook Ads were a big thing a few years ago and now it’s painful to get 5 likes on a blog post. It’s important to be ready to make quick changes.

Our Addiction Marketing Services are Affordable

Work with us and you will enjoy savings because we’ve already spent over 500 hours of testing and thousands of dollars of spending.

Most companies like ours work with other people’s money. We started out using our own finances to test our strategies. We spent a lot of money …  tens of thousands of dollars. You’ve heard that expression “put your money where your mouth is”. That’s what we did. It’s hard to find an addiction treatment center marketing agency that uses their own money. Just ask them.

We have a special approach to Pay Per Click Advertising. We have a turnkey system that includes:

  • Finding niche keywords for your unique treatment center
  • Matching it with precise ads and driving the clicks to a landing site.
  • Building the landing pages from scratch.
  • Building more landing pages to match the ads

We typically build a half-dozen landing pages for our clients. Matching your ads to a landing page is important. It results in a lower cost and higher conversions.

Google Ads LegitScript

We are experts with Google Ads. We only take clients that are LegitScript certified, or have a plan for certification. We do this because we are specialized. There are tons of Google Ads PPC companies, but very few with such a narrow niche. We’re really good at Google Ads because we know the landscape.


Landing Pages for the Addiction Treatment Center Industry are Critical

You can’t use your website as a landing page. You need special silos to address the exact needs of your potential patients. Our custom landing pages will blow your mind. To start, we typically whip out 3 to 5 pages per client. Each page matches the keywords to the ads. This way when someone clicks on an ad, the information shown is exactly what they’re expecting.

Happy searchers send positive signals back to the search engine, which increases your quality score and lowers the price of the ads.  Win-win.

The best part — no one is doing this correctly. Most every treatment center we work with is driving their traffic to only a few pages. Even worse, some point their PPC traffic to only one page. The reason for having only one page is simple:  it takes a lot of time, patience, and technical skill to develop a bunch-load of content pages. This is especially true when they are designed as isolated landing pages.

Traditional Problems with PPC in the Addiction Treatment Market

If you have been running ads on any platform, then you know that the biggest problem you face is getting too many calls from people with either Medicaid, bad insurance or no insurance at all.

This is what we do to avoid these typical problems:

  • Create audiences by setting up tracking
  • Carefully select high converting keywords
  • Run daily tests and add negative keywords
  • Write carefully crafted ads
  • Target a more affluent audience with demographics
  • We will even listen to the phone calls for feedback

Live Chat or Live Call Center

This is an area we knock out of the park. We can handle any type of call:

  • Answer calls and online chats live 7 days a week
  • Qualify potential clients
  • Follow up with phone calls, emails text message and social media!
  • Show people how to purchase insurance who don’t have it
  • Family Interventions over the phone
  • Prepare the entire family to ensure a successful recovery
  • Provide packing lists, blog articles, and resources
  • Follow up to ensure they are staying in treatment
  • Provide expertise in calls techniques and intervention strategies – we have resources available for every caller – no one leaves a call empty handed

We also work with you and your billing department to understand the financial requirements of your patients. ie: Cash, Insurance or other. Finally, we pre-screen, qualify and deliver a person who has made the decision to enter your treatment facility and meets your intake criteria.

Local Listings Advertising

A local business listing is an online entry that includes your business name, address phone number (NAP), and website along with other details.  The goal of local business listings is to make your business more consistent, accurate and searchable online. Local business listings play an important role in reputation, rankings, and revenue. That’s why it’s critical to see the big picture.

Optimized local or national page listings includes sites:

• Bing • Google My Business • Y.P – Yellow Page • Superpages – Dex Media • Four Square • City Search • Manta • Yelp • Infogroup • Localeze • Factual • Insider Pages • Best of the Web • Axiom • Hot Frog • Moz Local Management and others

Backlinks and General Listings Traffic Tactics 

Simply put, backlinks are incoming links to a webpage.

When a site or webpage links to another page, it’s called a backlink. Many people feel that backlinks are a major metric for the ranking of a webpage.  The theory is — a page with a lot of backlinks tends to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google. This is partially true. Good backlinks are an important part of a larger SEO solution

Google Analytics To Track Advertising Performance

Data includes, but is not limited to: • How many people visited the site • How much time did they spend on site • Did they find the site from Google search or other sources • What pages did they visit

It’s important to know who’s visiting your treatment center website and why. If you don’t know where your traffic is coming from and why … it’s hard to calculate what’s working.

Here are some questions that basic analytics reports can answer.

  • Are the visitors coming to your site first timers or returning visitors?
  • When folks come to your site, how many pages are they looking at? Are they clicking on your homepage and leaving? Do they immediately go over to your blog and read some articles
  • Where is your traffic coming from? For example, are your website visitors finding you through organic search, your Facebook page or from a local source?
  • What is your bounce rate? A “bounce” is when a person visits one page and leaves. This can be good or bad. If the person was looking to answer a question and found the answer on one of your pages, then they are satisfied. However, if they went to a page and thought “yikes, this isn’t going to help” then you have not sent the right signals to the search engine.
  • What are your lead generation costs? If you’re spending money on advertising how much is each patient costing you?
  • How about your average session duration? If people aren’t spending much time on your site, then maybe you should add some content. Do you need to add a Q & A page, directions to your facility or a program schedule?

Once you realize which metrics are most important, you will be able to provide better service and increase your census. I recently took on a client who had no analytics set up on their site. It’s amazing how much we learned about their business.  It’s a small 6-bed facility. After 30 days of optimizing their content, I’m proud to say they went from empty to near full.

Tracking Codes

A UTM code is a simple code that you can attach to a custom URL in order to track a source, medium, and campaign name. This enables Google Analytics to tell you where searchers came from as well as what campaign directed them to you.

A common use of UTM code is to create a vanity URL for each offline campaign, and then redirect that URL to whatever forwarding address you assign to it — most likely your main domain. This will give you the ability to track how a weekly newspaper ad, coupon, radio ad, or TV commercial is working without having to create custom landing pages for each campaign. By creating a separate UTM code for TV commercials and print ads, for example, you can get data on which generates more traffic, conversions, etc
